It's been 2+1/2 years since their self-titled debut release. Now, Spout is back with "What Are You Waiting For?", their powerful dose of painfully personal songwriting mixed with infectiously catchy riffs and hidden surprises that make you want to put the CD on repeat and leave it there all day.
You get more than just pictures and words with this CD's artwork. Each pages is a pictoral theme having to do with each song. The lyrics are handwritten and personal. There are many hidden meanings behind each picture. Can you find them? Spout lives up to their name's meaning by not only having a "thank you" section, but a "no thank-you" section, which they have listed as SAVIORS and POSERS.
Spout ignores the trends and clichés by skillfully penning real-life lyrics over catchy hard rock rhythms and beats, creating their own distinct radio-ready sound. No random meaningless rhymes and screams behind overused riffs.

They've scored a top ten song out of over 35,000 tracks on Garageband.com, Spout is a true mind opener, especially to those who thought you had to wear a cowboy hat to create a major buzz in Nashville, TN.
REVIEWS OF THE FIRST CD
” We get about 75 new albums a DAY coming in here now, (about 30,000 total), and Spout’s is one of the best I've ever heard…..like tossing gasoline on a fire of powerful songwriting and musicianship. Highly combustible and equally addictive, their self-titled album has blasted its way to the top of our rock picks.
- Derek Sivers / Founder of CDBABY
“Spout are possibly the most established hard rock band in Nashville, having relocated here in 2000 to do nothing but generate a non-stop buzz. This album is full of well-constructed songs with definite hooks. Mature song writing is highlighted by clean, flawless performances. This is a major label band waiting to happen.” - Jerry Work / NashvilleRock.Net
“Spout is not just powerful, but they’re hooky as hell, both with their riffs and their melodic/lyrical sense. ...see this band while the ticket prices are still low.” - Don Thomason, The Amplifier, Bowling Green, KY
